ANDY WOLF EYEWEAR is launching this spring a sunglasses capsule collection with fashion label RIANNA+NINA known for its vibrant colors and prints.
The Austrian based independent eyewear brand ANDY WOLF EYEWEAR is collaborating with the upcoming high fashion label RIANNA+NINA for a capsule collection presenting nine sunglasses for Spring/Summer 2019. Founded in 2014 by Rianna Nektaria Kounou and Nina Knaudt, the Berlin based and worldwide successful label RIANNA+NINA is known for vibrant colors, self developed one of a kind prints and feminine shapes like their iconic kimono - perfect for the wardrobe of a modern, international and shopisticated woman.
For the first time ANDY WOLF EYEWEAR is now using fine printed acetate from Italy to apply the style of RIANNA+NINA onto sunglasses. In a long process, the glasses are made out of three layers of acetate: first the primary color, then the pattern in a second one and finally a transparent coating. The perfectly matching temples are then installed by hand. The three self developed prints are a colorful mix of african inspired patterns of masks, animals and flowers, reflecting RIANNA+NINA’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection „La vie est un carnaval“.
The three brand new ANDY WOLF EYEWEAR shapes show the prints in three admirable variations: the cat-eye shape BOLERO sets the focus on the printed top bar, the oversize BAHIA model comes with the print all over and a strong top line as well. The eccentric LAMBADA shows a complete new round frame with an unexpected edge.
Katharina Schlager, CEO & Creative Direction ANDY WOLF EYEWEAR: „A couple of years ago I got a RIANNA+NINA kimono for my birthday. Since then I am inspired by the two wonderful women behind the brand and the rich colorful patterns. For making glasses with patterns, it was clear to me to work with them.“
Rianna Nektaria Kounou, founder of RIANNA+NINA: „I am personally a fan of the statement sunglasses by ANDY WOLF EYEWEAR and always wanted to have this complementary accessory to our collection. ANDY WOLF EYEWEAR and RIANNA+NINA also share the same values: handmade products, produced in Europe, a statement design and beloved pieces, which last for ever.“
The nine frames of the RIANNA+NINA x ANDY WOLF EYEWEAR Capsule Collection will be available in Spring 2019. Price for each sunglasses: 450,00€.
